First thing to check is that the deck is level by the adjustments on wheels. Then check the bearings in the spindle housings and there is no play in the shaft when you try to move blade up and down. You then can measure from the blade tip bottom of deck on both sides (3 o'clock and 9 o'clock, and then 12 o'clock and 6'o clock They should all be the same. If not then either the shaft is bent, or the deck is bent slightly causing the blade not being parallel to the deck. If you have someone rotate the shaft you should be able to tell if the shaft is bent or not. If the deck is bent, then you will have to straighten it out till the spindle shaft is perpendicular to deck.

check mower blades for blade upside down. you may be hitting grass with back of blade. match blade position to working blade side. or swap blades left to right and see if problem moves. if so, blade is culprit. also cold be a loose blade bolt allowing the shaft to spin without driving the blade. Do all work with engine off key out!

If tires are the correct inflation, check the angle of the deck. The blades may need to be sharpened. There is a blade balancer you can purchase. If one blade is not as sharp as the other, it will have a little more weight on one side than the other.

The mower is not cutting even. we changed the blades and leveled the deck but can not seem to fix the problem


Everything sounds and looks good but the cut is uneven. I would think the only possibilities are a freewheeling blade, or an upside down blade. Neither situation is rare. If neither of those is possible I think I would set the whole thing up on jack stands and make sure nothing is going akilter in the mechanism which raises and lowers the deck, one side could be hung up.

The blades should be a simple bolt on, how ever there are no adjustments at the blade. Your adjustments are on the swing brackets that raise and lower the deck.

2003 DLT3000 Craftsman riding mower. Air in tires correct, deck level front/back & side/side, new blades.. Still cuts uneven. Does this deck flex when cutting tall grass & how do I fix this...


when you put the new blades on did you notice if they were even with each other? the 42" decks have a tendency to "warp" inward on the left side. this causes the left blade to ride at an angle to the right blade - there is a tool to correct this, but not all shops have it - sometimes you can remove the deck, flip it over and wallop the inside edge of the left mandrel until the blades are even - a 2 lb. sledge works well for this

Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly


The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

Dual blade mower leaves uncut strips between blades.


Had same uneven mowing problem with new Toro Z4200 XTR mower. Problem was one side of the U-shaped rear deck hanger rod had popped out of its chassis mount (did hit something with mowing deck). Removed hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Put end of U-shaped rear deck hanger rod back in the chassis mount and remounted hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Z4200 now cuts lawn evenly again.
